Democrats capture House GOP holds Senate	 	 	 			Trump aims to upend convention again after midterm campaign of fear lies and defiance

President Donald Trump, emboldened by Republican election wins in the Senate and scornful of GOP candidates he felt didn't sufficiently embrace his support, delivered a stark warning to the new Democratic House majority on Wednesday: Investigate me, and I'll investigate you - and the government will grind to a halt. Republicans are likely to expand their majority in the Senate, and Democrats lost some governorships that they badly wanted, especially in OH and Florida.

But Trump sought to get lawmakers to work across the aisle to ensure that the country's jobs growth and economic boom continued.

But the rosiest expectations of some Democrats - that they could create a "blue wave" even when playing defence on the Senate map - proved unfounded.

So yes, during his post-midterms press conference on November 7, Trump tried to claim that the 2018 election was a good one for him.

But Republicans performed strongly in the deep red states where Trump mounted a frenetic final campaign blitz and proved that despite his low approval rating he remains a potent political force among conservatives.

For Trump, the evening unfolded at a watch party in the White House residence, where the East Room and the State Dining Room were set up with large-screen TVs. "These midterms are historically tough for a White House", said Republican strategist Scott Reed. The loss of 26 seats in the House, meanwhile, is dwarfed by the 63 seats lost by President Barack Obama in 2010 and the 52 seats lost by President Bill Clinton in 1994. But the olive branch he extended was studded with thorns as he declared that he would retaliate if Democrats use their control of the House to issue subpoenas to seek his tax returns and investigate his business dealings, his Cabinet's conduct and his campaign's ties to Russian Federation, as expected.

There are a half dozen House committees that have the power to investigate Trump - Intelligence, Oversight, Ways and Means, and Judiciary, among others.

Several ambitious Democrats easily won re-election, including presidential prospects Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Elizabeth Warren of MA and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY. "And she lost", he added, referring to the Republican from Utah. In addition, any investigative action will also be countered with probes by the Republicans in the Senate, Trump warned.

In another Tweet Wednesday morning, Trump issued a threat to Democrats, saying if they "think they are going to waste Taxpayer Money investigating us at the House level, then we likewise will be forced to consider investigating them for all the leaks of Classified Information, and much else, at the Senate level".

"It's about restoring the Constitution's checks and balances to the Trump administration", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in Washington while announcing her party's victory in the House.

Any investigation of the president is likely to face the same fate as that of the Russian Federation investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. After almost 18 months, Mueller has not brought any indictments related to collusion with Russian Federation, the central theme of his investigation.
